HCG varies: hCH testing is useful for confirmation in early pregnancy, and to evaluate for a miscarriage. It varies daily and is not stable so, in general, comparisons are rarely useful. Your positive pregnancy tests are reassuring that you are still pregnant. Discuss with your provider whether or not another hCG measurement to reassure or clarify is indicated.
